Occasionally, a very special historic country home/farm house such as this one, set in a beautiful plot of land comes to the market in the Axarquia… It makes you sit up and take notice!  Renovated to perfection over the last 15 years and presented with style, charm and atmosphere plus a pool finishes the picture of perfection!  A historic farm house of 235M2 has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), a guest w.c., contemporary kitchen, light and bright dining room, charming living/dining room with original floor to ceiling fireplace (unique to the immediate area) with wood burning stove, sun room that drops down to a light & bright dining room, French doors that open onto a Moorish styled roof terrace from the master bedroom suite, a large covered ground floor terrace, palm lined entrance leading to car port and garage, with additional parking for 4 cars.
